Manufacturing Success Story

Pictured with me are AdChem Manufacturing Technologies, Inc. President Mike Polo (center) and his father Paul Polo (right).

Last week, AdChem Manufacturing was approved for a state loan that will allow them to purchase new equipment, buy a new production facility, and add a third shift of employees.

Over the past few years, Connecticut has been making the types of investments in employee training and manufacturing incentives that are making a real difference between a company merely surviving, and thriving. AdChem and Connecticut manufacturing in general are thriving, and they are poised for even more growth.

Adchem2After helping AdChem and other local manufacturers a few years ago, the legislature expanded the Small Business Express Program. Recently, AdChem President Mike Polo told me, "Our volume of business is increasing dramatically. We're buying new equipment weekly. It's an exciting time. I feel very, very comfortable growing in Connecticut; it's a very, very strong state for manufacturing."

AdChem's Progress Drive expansion will cost an estimated $8.6 million, with the state contributing $3 million. AdChem will add another 18,000 square feet at a new location on Progress Drive in the next few months, and will add approximately 3,500 square feet to its existing facility at 369 Progress Drive.
